Not only are College of Education faculty and students nationally recognized for their landmark research on topics like racial inequality in schools, but also for pioneering programs like Uteach and the Kinesiology and Health Education Department’s rigorous athletic training program. Check out this sample of media coverage our top-ranked college has received from MSNBC, KUT, Alcalde and KNOW.

Julian Vasquez Heilig
“What’s causing racial segregation in schools”

“Demography determines destiny … those schools that are triple segregated are more likely to be low performing and this is a really big issue.”


Richard Reddick
“Why Do Black Students Get More Suspensions?”

“‘So often, schools require students to leave their culture, leave their heritage at the door and convert to what we have, instead of saying, ‘We embrace what you have,” Reddick says. “‘And that doesn’t happen unless you have a clear understanding of what the community does.'”


“UT’s Award-Winning Teacher Education Program Goes (Even More) National

“The U.S. faces a shortage of 283,000 science and math teachers by 2015. Increasingly, educators are agreeing that one of the best ways to bridge that gap is a program that started on the Forty Acres.”


Athletic Training Program
“Open Up and Say ‘Hook’em'”

“Students in the university’s undergraduate athletic training degree program in the College of Education help provide support to athletic training and sports medicine staff, providing care to UT’s hundreds of student-athletes. They have to be jacks-of-all-trades, working on everything from setting up fields and courts for practices and games to providing first-aid treatment to assisting in rehabilitation for injured athletes.”
